Editorial Reviews

Review

...a rare addition to the burgeoning canon of handbooks in that it shows families how to harness the energy, productivity, and impulsiveness of a hyperactive child in positive ways. (The Times (London))

Essentially a primer on this somewhat controversial area of special education, this book offers a "cookbook" format on how to deal with children who display one or more of the typical characteristics of these disorders…Useful for parents of children with ADHD. (Choice)

Cimera, Robert E. (2002) Making ADHD a Gift: Teaching Superman How to Fly. Lanham, Maryland: Scarecrow Education.
How you teach children about ADHD could set the tone for the rest of their lives. You'll have to paint an honest picture of the condition but also be very positive .... Talk to them about their favorite superhero.... Bring up the fact that each superhero has different abilities.... Then explain that people in real life are a lot like superheroes-everybody has different abilities.... The super abilities of kids with ADHD include having a lot of energy and being able to run around a lot without getting tired. They can also be very creative and intelligent. The purpose of school and IEPs is to get children with ADHD to control and utilize their super abilities for "The Good"... You are teaching Superman how to fly (p. 97).
This is the gift of this book. Robert E. Cimera is an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh who was diagnosed with ADHD-C as an adult. He views ADHD as a positive ability. Each chapter begins with a chapter outline; a case study, illustrating elements that will be addressed in the chapter; questions for consideration, for understanding the case study; and a discussion of underlying elements, concerns and strategies. The information is conveyed in a conversational style suitable for the layperson or student educator.
In the first chapter he gives an overview of definitions and diagnoses of the four types of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder): ADHD-I (Inattentive), ADHD-HI (Hyperactive-Impulsive), ADHD-C (Combined), ADHD-NOS (Not Otherwise Specified). This information serves as a basis for understanding the case studies and discussions that follow.

Format: Paperback
This is an incredible book! At last a book that talks about hos children with ADD aren't monsters. It is written by a Ph.D. who teaches, researches, and HAS ADHD. He actually knows what it is like. The book has six or seven chapters on nothing but strategies and ways of helping kids use their God given abilities. The last chapter has a list of more resources like books and websites. This is the only book that has talked about medication in a neutral way. The author points out that drugs have some good points and some bad points and leaves it up to the readers to decide what is best for their kids. But the focus of the book is to help kids with ADHD utilize their energy in productive ways-- NOT how to make kids slow down and be NORMAL! WONDERFUL WONDERFUL book! Buy it! You wont be sorry!

Somebody at a CHADD meeting suggested that I read this book. I am happy that I did! It is so well written that I couldn't put it down. I read it in one evening. It gives many practical strategies. But the best feature is that it views ADHD as a gift that should "be utilized, not repressed!" I can't recommend this book more highly. Get it. You'll be happy that you did!

Written for parents, teachers, and individuals with ADHD. This book explains what ADHD is, but also has several chapters of strategies for dealing with inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity and social skills. It also has chapters on how to teach young children, adolescents, and adults with ADHD, how to develop educational programs for students with ADHD, and additional resources. The sections on ADHD and depression was particularly informative.
